Top 5 LGBT Reads

Caitsbook Top 5: LGBT Reads!

Here is a list of my favorite LGBT reads. Now, in order to count for this list, at least 50% of the book had to follow an LGBT character (so I couldn’t include The Raven Cycle or Six of Crows, sadly, but maybe I’ll make another list later!). And if you’re wondering why you’re favorite isn’t included- I probably just haven’t read it yet! There are so many great LGBT novels in the world and unfortunately, I have yet to read every single one (emphasis on yet).

Cover Change Corner – Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

The original cover of Shatter Me is… I’m sorry to say it… just bad. Really, really bad. People on covers has just gotten boring and in this case, it also has none of the feel of the book (if that makes sense?). However, the newer cover is so gorgeous and I think is a perfect way of representing Tahereh Mafi’s beautifully poetic novel.

My (Super Late) August Wrap Up!

aug wrap up

I read 10 books this month, including only 1 from my August TBR! I really struggled with reading this month. I was in an awful slump, but I’m hoping September will be better. And yes, I know I’m counting some really short novella’s/scenes, but I read so little this month that I want every page to count.
